DH Conley Football runs to success

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

When Coach Brian Paschal came to Greenville he brought the misdirection offense of the Wing-T along with him. It has been successful in the past, but this year the running game has really gone to the next level. The Vikings have run all the way to a 5-1 record with Myles Taylor, Bam Staton and Johnathan Shrock carrying the load.

Coach Paschal says each of them has a nose for the end zone and for winning. "They're all great kids," said Paschal. "They're all great athletes, come from great homes. We're proud they're part of our program. We think they exemplify what Coney football is all about."

Coming into their last game against rival JH Rose everyone was talking about the Rampant's defense. They hadn't given up double digit points all year. When the Vikings hung 33 on them, the focus swayed to the special run game across town.

"We just try and keep doing what we're doing," said Taylor. "Really we just go in with the same mindset every single week; we're going to run hard, run through people and hopefully it comes out on the positive end for us."

They complement each other both on and off the field. A special bond that has made for a special season.

"None of us get carried away with wanting the spotlight," said Shrock. "If one of us is carrying, the others got to block. We all get the job done and do what it takes."

"It's a good feeling," said Staton. "I'm happy to be a part of this team. It's great."

This week Maleek Gorham joins an already crowded backfield. Instead of worrying about touches, Gorham just wants to keep the positive momentum going.

"It's pretty impressive. With these three guys we've got back there right now there's not many people around this state that can do what they do in the backfield," said Gorham.

A winning mentality for a winning program and for these four players the sky is the limit.

 "This backfield can be really special," said Gorham. "I really think everybody in our backfield has the potential to be a division one player."
